The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas has been in the headlines lately as he previews tracks from his upcoming solo album. But new songs aren’t the only thing in his arsenal: during his performance at the Fader Fort at SXSW on Saturday night, he performed his Daft Punk collaboration “Instant Crush”. Casablancas had played the track during his recent string of secret shows, but this marks the first time everyone has a chance to witness it. You know, because the Robots sure as hell aren’t performing it. Watch below.
On Friday night, Casablancas performed a solo set at The Chevrolet Courtyard at Cedar Street. Read our report and see photos here.
